Finally Airasia gets it right with the Swan

Corrected! Airasia front page on 19th July with the correct mascot - the Swan.

What is the official mascot for Sibu? Is it a swan? Is it the dolphin.. but what makes people remember Sibu better is the mysterious Batu Katak! Anyway, Airasia Social Media was quick to rectified the error with their online promotion graphic. Below is a personal message from their Mr. Ho Weng Leong (I almost mistaken him as Wong Ho Leng – through my small Blackberry screen LOL).

Hi James, thanks for the heads up. We will channel your blog article to our web team for amendment. appreciated. – AirAsia Social Media Team.

If you are planning to visit Sibu (in Sarawak), check out the famous foodie blogger, WackyBecky’s trip to Sibu recently, courtesy of Firefly (hehehee… did Airasia invites you previously?)

Finally, if you are planning a holiday (limited budget), try Airasia Go for flight and hotel, all-in-one. I have used them and will be using them again this Raya. Worth your money at least for me, now. Never try their Tune Hotel tho’ hahahaaa….

AirAsia web team needs to upgrade their knowledge about Sarawak

Screenshot of AirAsia web front page

People who have not been to Sibu, Sarawak would be frustrated because they won’t find any large cave as shown in the slide animation for AA’s Kuala Lumpur-Sibu flight promotion, as shown in their front page.

Tan Sri Tony Fernandez, Niah Caves (as shown in the graphic) is in Miri Division! Hope your web graphic designer is not a Malaysian, else we cannot forgive such a mistake, especially when Niah Caves is well-known as one of the birthplaces of civilisation in the region.

I will be using AA soon, and I hope their information about Singapore is correct, else………….!

Updated Sibu (less the Niah Caves)

Anyway, check out the out-of-date Sibu page (with the <– typical example of government websites, of not being updated regularly). No wonder the opposition have a field day, using government information to whack back the government of the day. To the owner of the website, do not assume that the webmaster have spare time to update the site, just because you may have sent him/her for training. Kasih dia extra allowance lar.. instead of adding more task to his/her already long list of things to do daily.

The website is as good as a cave if it is not being updated, at least once a week. Don’t tell us, there are no happenings in Sibu since that page was updated.


Facebook friends in Sibu

I managed to get hold of an old classmate and fellow Facebook friends while on an overnight trip to Sibu recently.¬† Of course, I won’t wanna miss the great Foochow cuisine. Pork and duck! Roasted roasted roasted, tasty, just salty enough for a few rounds of greenman. Located at Jalan Pedada, the corner coffeeshop serves one of the best roasted pork in Sibu.

RM10 per serving - Roasted Pork
